It's important to read this series in order. That's unusual comment for me as I often read whatever I pick up but this one I read in order. I'm glad I did because the character development begins with the first novel. The heroine is Kate Daniels, a "kick-ass" heroine with ethics. She chooses to protect all the citizens of Atlanta, human or otherwise.

When she investigates a shapeshifter death infected with a virulent disease, she strikes out to find who or what is responsible for spreading it. As a Knight of the Order she finds herself forced to choose between saving the citizens of Atlanta whoever they may be or following the guidelines set by the order.

In her personal life, Kate's relationship with Curran, the Beast Lord, is still shaky. When he fails to appear for a special meal she prepared she begins to doubt the strength of their relationship - again. But things start to smooth out as the two begin to talk about their feelings and how to solve their problems. Of course, they continue to have disagreements but life for them as a couple is improving.

In this novel we learn much about Kate and who she was as well as how Curran became who he is today. In addition, Kate is forced to fight demon after demon whose tactics are down and dirty, forcing Kate to become creative in her defensive moves. Some readers may find the fight scenes too numerous and want to jump ahead but the authors meld them together for an appropriate climatic battle.

Like many others, I am so involved in this series that I can hardly wait for the next installment. It's well done and well written.
